Please help us use our ASSIST abilities in the simplest way: Give us a chance to put your name after the /assist. That makes it so that with ONE CLICK, we've got your target. Also, if you haven't rolled a tank but plan to, please PLEASE refrain from putting odd symbols and accent marks over the first few letters of your name. I know people say "well, all you have to do is click FOCUS" or "just have target of target active." Well, some of us CC, or do other things and it is much easier and faster (as well as have less likelihood of errors) to just have something like /assist Leettank or whatever your name is. (btw, I usually sneak in the typing of the name as I make the table or Cookie Jar for everyone. Please CLICK on the darn things!)

I have a macro on my rogue that actually writes another macro for my fan of knives. I target the tank and press the button that writes the macro. Super easy and I don't care how they spell their name. I'm sure this can be modified to the same effect with the /assist.1st macro (I've named this one "setTotT":/run ToT = UnitName("target")/run if not InCombatLockdown() then EditMacro('TotT', nil, nil, '#showtooltip\n/cast [@'.. ToT ..'] Tricks of the Trade', nil); print('Tricks of the Trade set to : ' .. ToT); else print('CAN NOT DO THAT NOW!'); end;It makes a macro called "TotT"I copied this from someone else and am not entirely sure how you'd go about modifying it (also not 100% on the syntax you need for using /assist in a macro), but I'm guessing something like:"setASS"/run ToT = UnitName("target")/run if not InCombatLockdown() then EditMacro('ASS', nil, nil, '/assist [@'.. ToT ..']' , nil); print('Assist set to : ' .. ToT); else print('CAN NOT DO THAT NOW!'); end;Now you should have your "ASS" macro. =DOh, one quick note. Before using this for the first time, make a macro called ASS...doesn't have to have anything in it. It's just to set it up so you can choose the icon and place it on your hotbar. It will get changed to be/assist [@whoever]
